Lafayette Weather- Storms Could Be Severe Today

We have reached that point in the year where a weather system seems to move through the area about every 4 days. Today’s potential for severe thunderstorms is not really that unusual. An upper level disturbance will help to bring in moisture and create instability in the atmosphere ahead of a frontal system that is expected to push through the area later tonight.

This combination of moisture and instability has give the Storms Prediction Center reason to issue a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for much of the north and western sections of Acadiana until 1pm today.

The current radar from the National Weather Service in Lake Charles shows a significant area of rain with embedded thunderstorms moving to the east while individual storms within the main rain shield are moving to the northeast at 25mph. The current forecast is calling for a 90% chance of rain and thunderstorms today, 70% tonight before ending and then sunny and cooler to start the work week.
